Starting and finishing from the Mt Buller Village Square, entrants will navigate themselves in teams of two, or as singles, around the ski fields to a series of checkpoints across the mountain (snow conditions dependent). The course can be completed on skis, snowboard, snowshoes, skins, alpine touring or split board equipment and there are several race categories for participants to enter.

The winners will be determined based on the quickest times and a presentation ceremony will be held at the 2016 Backcountry Film Festival, held at the Mt Buller Alpine Cinema following the event.
